5/19- 2 hour drive back down to Bangor. Stopped at the University of Maine campus for a junk run on their track. Passed 1 mile in 7:31 feeling about as expected then shut it down with a glacial cool down. I am typing this from a free public I-pad in La Guardia awaiting my flight back to Birmingham.
Grade: Pass/ distance-2.0
5/20- Gold's 5 in 38:48 (7:46 pace). First half was a solid 18:48 then it was an even 20:00 for the second half. Not surprising that I struggled today but this just doesn't feel right. Could be a blood sugar issue because I saw stars when I got up in the morning.
5/21- VERY POOR. Trak Shak 3 mile route in 23:53 (7:58 pace) and had to rally at the end just to make a sub-8. Not quite a "collapse" but not far off. Not sure what it is now. Could be blood sugar or Thym-Adren again or I need to detox.
5/22- 3 miles at Gold's in 19:08 (6:22 pace) plus a mile cool. That's equivalent to a 19:50 5K. Once again, I've gone from pathetic to almost normal literally overnight ALL BECAUSE OF ONE FREAKING PILL!!! That's just the nature of the beast with chemical sensitivity. I am now down to 3 Thym-Adren. Only 4 weeks ago, I was taking 6 and am concerned that the downward trend is too fast. A rant post is coming. In a hollow victory, I have clinched a 1.0 GPA for the year.
5/23- COLLAPSE! 2 mile junk run at Spain Park and felt AWFUL. Gums were bleeding a bit last night, which suggests possible Vitamin C deficiency. Took some ascorbic acid and was worse. Natural C is an option but for now I need to detox and stay off caffeine.
PM- Worst day since December of last year. 1 Mile at Spain Park in 9:57. 'Nuff said. Detox is my best hope.
5/24- Well, it's official now. MY SYSTEM HAS REJECTED THYM-ADREN! DETOX IS MY ONLY HOPE! Junk run on Wisteria. Ran the first mile and my time was down to 8:08. Then I popped ONE Thym-Adren pill and I was back to the 10:00 range on the back half. 'Nuff said.
5/25- Detox appears to have been successful. I passed about as many stones as I ever have but my body has yet to cry out for Thym-Adren. In fact, I'm pretty sure that my system would still reject it. I have little choice other than to ride it out at least for a few days and order a new hair test kit. I would feel safer on the ADHS (modulator) but I don't know if I can tolerate that. What is certain is that I CAN still tolerate the Cal/Mag and the molybdenum and both are still necessary. The lame workout was indoors with a toilet available every lap. Did 1 Mile in 8:30 without the moly then improved to 7:03 with it. I did not try any Thym-Adren but I'm betting that I would have been back over 9:00 with it. I am off to Nashville to put in an appearance at a wedding tonight.
ANGRY AGAIN. 3 wins in a row followed by 3 losses. If I can stay off the Thym-Adren and the medical report shows I am in balance, it will turn around real fast.
Distance=20.0/ GPA= 12.2/7= 1.74
